People are weird...and dumb, but mostly weird

So I'm a normal person *twitch, make violent stabbing motion with hand* or at least I consider myself pretty run of the mill. I live in fear that I would someday turn into one of those people that completely baffle me thoughout the day.

Today the Annoying Toothless woman, who once yelled at me for not helping her down some slippery steps promptly enough, (I shoulda helped her alright) was on the bus once again. She gets on the bus with a blue suitcase...a blue suitcase that now takes over from her two to three bags with cartoon themes for going to school. She starts talking as soon as she gets on the bus, it doesn't matter who she is talking to, she just natters on and on. Fortunatly I've learned the important bus lesson of no eye contact. For the love of god woman you complain of how hard school it might that have something to do with the fact that you are bringing LUGGAGE, although the wheels might afford better manuervabilty through the halls but really ! It's always whine, whine, whine, ask the bus driver every freaking morning if you can make route 24 because that brings you right to school and blah blah blah....and where the HELL are your teeth! The way your chin can go from normal chin position to right under your nose is just plain scary and wrong, you lose a 1/4 of your face when you do that chewing nothing thing you do.

Then this morning the ATW (annoying too..well you get the idea) makes friends with "Oh my god m'dear I gots an eye both eyes" woman...who then rubs her eyes....AWWWWW that's gross. I need my purell hand sanatizer please..STAT and bring me a cab while you're at it.

I respect the fact that the ATW is going back to school to do whatever...face gymastics ??? I'm just a little more than peeved by her annoying (to me anyway) personality. I will prevail and not cause mayhem on the bus though I will wander through my mental pictures of someday installing a remote control in her wheeled luggage and lead her on a merry chase, towards a denturist's office, over some stairs and away from the bus, always away from the bus.

Writing Exercise

So as I told a friend, I've started this blog mainly as a way to get back into writing. Which is kind of disingenuous because I don't know that I was every really into writing. It's something that came rather easily in highschool (oh so many moons ago) and I've always enjoyed it but I don't know that I have the mental depth to be a serious writer, as I am a rather shallow pool. (smirk)

Perhaps I'm over thinking it as I have a tendency to do with a lot of things. I don't post on snopes very much as that crowd is intimidating at the best of times and when they get into a debate 'der wicked me son. I am however a much better (er maybe more prolific) poster on the Kelley Armstrong site even if it's mostly in the members only open and chat forums. Sure just this morning I posted in the hot button abortion thread over there. On the KA site they have an Online Writers Group(s) or OWG's and an entire panel for writers discussions, pleas for help, resources, ideas which will be great if I ever get it into my head to petition to join up. I think my main problem is focus though, that and follow through. I've gotten so used to well mental pictures which are just snapshots of the way I see a bus driver who resembles a kinder surprise, or what if the salvation army kettle people followed you around the mall singing at you till you gave a sufficient amount at Xmas time. I think I'll take my own advice and start with something small, a short story maybe and just go for the basics, begining, middle and end. Then perhaps someday I can go back and do something about that poor girl I left in a sewer about to face a troll. She's okay for now though....I hope. ;)

Hell for all I know maybe I'm just destined to be the scribe for all the going's on in the neighbourhood. That would be.....interesting.

Snow Day !

Hmmm having lots and lots of snow today. Very much a stay inside in my pjs until almost 2 o'clock and only getting dressed then because I felt I had to.

The rest of this day has turned into a surf the internet until I feel my eyes may jump from my skull in an effort to just get a rest from it. Movies have been put on, first the background music of Independance Day as Will Smith fires off one-liners and kicks some alien a**.

Now it's The Day After Tomorrow, my sister decided it had a certain symetry to have the storm raging outside while on the small screen everything freezes and the world almost ends. Fun. :)

I think that'll do (pig ha ha ha) for my first blog. Might be back later to play around with this new (to me) medium.

May all your mental pictures be in focus.
